The New York Giants picked up and departed Arizona today en route for Santa Clara where they will take on the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football.
The Giants enter the game far more banged up than the 49ers, but they have a couple of injury concerns of their own — namely wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder).
It was already a foregone conclusion that Giants guard Ben Bredeson (concussion) would miss the game but head coach Brian Daboll left the door open for running back Saquon Barkley to play.
“I’m not saying that he’s out yet. He’s a quick healer. I’m not saying he’s in (or) he’s out. We are going to take it all the way up with him to Thursday, but he feels a lot better today. I just talked to him. So, we will see where we are at,” Daboll said on Tuesday.
Ultimately, that proved to be a little pie-in-the-sky. Barkley and Bredeson were among four who won’t suit up in Week 3.
Full injury reports for both the Giants and 49ers can be found below:
Out: OL Ben Bredeson (concussion), RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), LB Azeez Ojulari (hamstring), LT Andrew Thomas (hamstring)
